This was a very cool moment.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton didn’t play in last night’s preseason opener against the Houston Texans, but he found a way to have an impact.
During warmups, Newton managed to sneak up on Texans rookie Deshaun Watson, who was getting ready for his NFL debut.
Newton and Watson are both Georgia natives and both won national championships in college and arrived in the NFL with high expectations, so it was cool to see them have this quick moment.
Watson performed rather well overall in his first preseason action. The former Clemson star completed 15-of-25 passes for 179 yards and rushed three times for 24 yards and a touchdown.
